    I had a goodman gmv95 two stage furnace installed controlled by a honeywell visionpro iaq .the old furnace had a general 1042 power humidifier which i would like to control through the vision pro my installer was not very familar with the vision pro and hooked it up but cannot get it to work. can someone talk me through this set up as i am getting fed up waiting for him to return. I am a electonic tech by trade so It should be pretty straight forward i would think. from what i can tell he has the two wires from the humidifier going directly to the interface module of the vision pro . should it not first go to the furnace board to pick up the 12volts then to the control module.
    Thanks Frank

    Most stuff on hvac is controlled with 24vac. Some need more power to run say a fan motor or other internal stuff, but some (the one I have, for example) only need 24vac to run. One lead would be the common side of the 24vac transformer, and the other would be switched to turn it on when needed. This is often available on the thermostat leads on the control board. Often this could be the fan control, or if the control board has a humidifier lead contact, that may be all that is required. Normally, you don't run the humidifier unless the fan is on, so that's a possible connection.

    Some use a separate current sensing switch (relay) on the line voltage lead to the fan to trigger the humidifer. This part is an accessory and may be available separately.

    The symbology on hvac control diagrams is not the same as many electronic schematics, but you should be able to figure it out if you study it a bit.
